About Sunstrike Pictures

We are Cara Brennan and Jack Payne, two Brooklyn-based filmmakers.

We produce narrative film, & screenplays. We believe in the power of storytelling to create modern myths that elevate and entertain us, and inspire us to become our best selves.

We are Sunstrike Pictures.

Among our co-produced and WIP projects are:

Werewolf Game - [Feature, in pre-production] 12 strangers are kidnapped by a social media company and forced to play a deadly psychological game of survival. Currently in development with Different Duck Films.

Be Not Afraid - [Short, in production] Two mercenary exorcists confront a powerful evil in a the home of a nice, normal couple (based loosely on our series, Asher).

In These Strange Times - [short, Vimeo] A young man confronts himself during the COVID-19 NYC lockdown with the help of a spirit guide who is not all he seems. 

Asher - [Web-series, YouTube] An exorcist-for-hire takes on a demonic mystery that starts in one woman's home and spreads throughout the city.  ASHERTHESERIES.COM to watch.

Heroic- A WIP cinematic universe about a hero with mysterious powers of psychic empathy that compel them to take on the crime and exploitation ravaging New York City in a not-too-distant future.

5 Ways Our Patrons Help Us:

1. Gear Up: Upgrading and renting filming gear to make our films look amd sound amazing.

2. Pay Their Worth: Our actors and crew work hard every shoot. We work with a lot of our friends, who generously donate their time and energy, but they deserve to be paid for their talent, skill, and time.

2. Delegate in Post-Production: Film is deeply collaborative, and we often need to bring in other professionals. Sometimes we need something done beyond our skill-sets, like sound-mixing or visual FX. Being able to invest back into other high-quality creators keeps our production values high in post-production so that we can put our stories’ best feet forward.

4. Internet Things: Web-hosting, subscription services, and all of the back-end boring tech services we have to use to make sure our online interface with our audience stays strong.

5. Time Off is Time On Set:
We both work freelance, that means when we aren't working, we aren't making money. Filmmakers need to eat and keep the lights on like everybody else.
